In case you couldn’t tell, we kinda like cars here at The Culture Curators. The old ones, the new ones, the concepts, the classics, and pretty much anything in between. Today we get a look at a stunning machine that is currently up for sale. This 1972 Lamborghini Miura SVJ Coupe is something special. The Miura was stunning in both design and performance, though it did have its faults.
However, Lamborghini’s test driver Bob Wallace aimed to reverse those faults with the Miura Jota in 1970. Mr. Wallace reworked the suspension, added unique aerodynamic enhancements, and improved the stunning V12 to produce over 400 horsepower. Those modifications ended up making it to three Miuras during production; this is one of those three.
Dubbed “The Corsican,” the car was first sold to a real estate developer in Corsica, France. The car underwent a significant restoration by Carrozzeria Cremonini and Top Motors. Modifications include racing seats, harnesses, and dual Heuer chronographs, adding a dose of detail to an already incredible machine.
Take a closer look at the 1972 Lamborghini Miura SVJ “The Corsican” in the images and head over to the Swiss dealership Kidston to find out more. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more from the automotive world coming very soon.
